The OEDK supports design activities from each discipline of Rice Engineering. The focus is to design, prototype and deploy solutions to real-world engineering challenges and to create the full circle of real-world experience that has innovative societal impact.
Project teams that meet the criteria to use the OEDK get access to many resources including dedicated Work Tables, Complimentary Printing, Access to Ordering Forms, and much much more. You must create a Team Profile to get access to these resources.
The OEDK hosts a series of workshops that will help students to turn their ideas into physical realities. These hands-on sessions are designed to teach a range of foundational physical prototyping techniques and grow student’s confidence in building things.
